The death of a Glendale mother of six children last month struck a chord with city workers and local property owners who have since donated $600 in gift cards to help the family buy food. The donations were a welcome reprieve for the siblings, ranging in age from 7 to 19, because their mother, Rosemary Rodriguez, was receiving state assistance and their stepfather buses tables at a local restaurant. The eldest siblings, Juan and Reynaldo Fuentes, sought jobs to help out but haven’t had any luck.

"I got a lot of stuff, a lot a lot," the Edison Elementary School first-grader said. "I wanted lots of things because I like school and shopping. " By the end of the day, the Glendale Galleria Target had donated at least $2,550 in school supplies and clothes.

We have a gun violence problem in our nation and need to take steps to eliminate the problem, but canceling the Gun Shows at the Civic Auditorium will be merely symbolic. It will not stop a single person from legally buying a gun. May I suggest that the city take the rental revenue from the gun shows, $54,000 last year, leverage it with local merchants and fund a citywide gun buy-back program with merchant gift cards. This will immediately take guns off the streets of our community, making it safer, and stimulate sales with our local merchants.

The volume of Christmas decorations, food and gifts in the lobby at Glendale Memorial Hospital surged Wednesday as staff members stopped by to contribute to the heap. But the items were not meant for an internal holiday party - rather 25 Cerritos Elementary School families too poor to celebrate the season without assistance. “Whatever you have, you recognize how much others don't and it just makes you feel a little bit better about aiding and assisting in the community,” said Michelle Galanti, an exercise physiologist.
